I have a fedora35 desktop with three monitors using Cinnamon standard,
After the screensaver is activated and I then press a key to restore
the display, all the windows from the center monitor have shifted to
the left monitor. Why does this happen?
Also, how do I even disable the screensaver? I've tried the
"screensaver" applet in "System Settings", but there's no toggle to
actually disable it, only to be able to control the delay before
starting the screensaver.
Perhaps you even have another desktop besides Cinnamon that you
recommend, and is better than the default GNOME? There are other
problems I have with it, like when using "remote desktop viewer" to
view my Windows VM, ALT keypresses are interpreted by the viewer and
not passed on to Windows.
For several recent kernel updates, dnf has complained about this but has
updated as normal. I've just noticed that the package name looks
strange, too. Should it get a BZ?
FWIW, I think this is needed by the rpmfusion nVidia packages. :-)

Is there an easy way for temporally avoid any problem?
I am out of town, and I do not want to challenge my distribution right now.

For some years now, I have maintained a collection of mathematical packages
and some of their dependencies in Fedora. I actually stopped using the
packages in question awhile ago, but have been maintaining them out of
inertia. I would like to free up time to get some code checking and formal
methods packages into Fedora. But I need to divest myself of the sagemath
and Macaulay2 stacks in order to have time to do so.
There are 241 packages listed below. I am primary maintainer for 217 of
them. Before anybody panics, I am not talking about orphaning them now.
My plan is to spend the next 12 months searching for people willing to step
into the primary maintainer role for these packages. I will repeat this
message at regular intervals in hope of finding willing participants. One
year from now, if I have not given all of these packages away, then I will
orphan the rest.
This is not a collection of packages that is falling apart. They are high
quality packages. Very little needs to be done right away.
If you have interest in any of the listed packages, please get in touch.
It doesn't matter if you are currently a Fedora packager or not. If not, I
will sponsor you via the comaintainer path, and stick around until you feel
comfortable handling the package yourself. It doesn't matter if you are
interested in only a single package. Contact me anyway.
To help those who may be new to packaging, I have started documenting some
of my workflows. I have a set of web pages rooted here:
Those pages contain walk-throughs and examples illustrating how I approach
various tasks. I'm willing to donate any of that content to Fedora, so if
you see something you think should be on docs.fedoraproject.org, feel free
to tell me so. Also feel free to suggest additions or changes to what I

The primary maintainer is listed after the package name.

As far as I know, neither bagnara nor pcpa is actively involved in Fedora
anymore, so once I step away from their packages, the packages will
effectively be unmaintained.
If you want to see how these packages are related to each other, here is a
graph showing all of the packages I am involved with in Fedora:
The black ovals are packages for which I am primary maintainer, blue are
packages for which I am comaintainer, green are packages for which I am
neither but I maintain the package anyway, and red are packages that I
normally don't touch except for the occasional rebuild due to an soname
bump or similar. The ones I am talking about stepping away from are
primarily on the right half of the diagram.
I have a system with a NVIDIA Geforce gt 610 video card. There don't
seem to be Fedora drivers for the 5.14 kernel. I see that Debian has a
patched version of the 390.144 driver in a .deb package but don't see
anything for Fedora. Is there a way to uses the .deb package?
A bit of a weird one I'm not sure whose fault it is.
When I open a video file the default GNOME video player (Totem) or with another GStreamer based video player (such as Clapper from Flathub), audio and video works fine. If I seek manually forward, audio is gone, while video keeps rolling. Sometimes, seeking forward another time fixes it, but not always.
Doesn't happen with mpv-based video players, nor with VLC. No error in stderr. Any idea what's going on and who might be the culprit? At least so I know where to open the bug report.

I have two laptops loaded with the XFCE spin. One laptop began it's life as
Fedora 2x-something, and is now running 35, and I just reloaded the second
laptop with a fresh F35 install, and fully updated it.
Both laptops show "Adwaita" as their default theme.
The panel on the first laptop is very light gray, with black text, and looks
The panel on the 2nd laptop, the one with a new F35 load, is very dark grey
and lightly-colored text.
Both laptops claim to be using Adwaita.
Tiebreaker: I have a third laptop, also with XFCE, and also traces its
lineage to Fedora 2x. Its appearance matches the first one.
Why is a new F35 install's Adwaita theme different? It looks downright ugly.
On the other two laptops the Adwaita theme is light-colored, and is very
similar in its brightness to the High Contrast theme. There's only minor
differences, flipping between the two. But on the odd duck the Adwaita theme
is basically the negative of the other two.
